“It didn’t matter that I was unhappy, but when my child was unhappy, that’s not acceptable to me.”
With Taiwan on the cusp of becoming the first country in Asia to legalize same-sex marriage, a video about a Taiwanese father’s gradual acceptance of his daughter, who is a lesbian, has been widely shared this week.
The video was shot by Home Is Love – a Taiwanese group that supports same-sex marriage – in December and features a family that the group found through a Facebook group.
Home Is Love requested BuzzFeed News not publish the names of the family for privacy reasons.
In the video, the 65-year-old dad talks about his initial shock and confusion upon finding out that his eldest daughter is a lesbian.
